My mother’s uncle George Nudd died on the sinking M.V. Harboe Jenson I am trying to find out more information about it .. I contacted Tony Allen at the Wrecksite and he said to try you. if you have no information do you know who else I could try. It’s a strange thing but as I have got older this has become more important to me even though I never knew him, but his fiancé later became my godmother.

Many thanks
